We recently cut our western trip short and returned home (NC) due to Matthew but the time we did have in this area was awesome. It was our first visit there and we intended only a short stop on the way to Glacier.
Sage Creek is a free
campground in Badlands National Park. Its twelve miles or so on a graded dirt road and consists of nothing more than a loop at the end with no amenities other than a couple of dry toilets and a half dozen picnic tables BUT the scenery and wildlife are incredible. There were no marked sites and we had tenters using our Scamp
as a windbreak just a few feet from our door. Still, everyone got along well; sort of like a sixties folk concert.
Having trouble with pics for some reason and will try to post them later
